Hulky agrees that we need to figure out a way to manage Chip at least when it comes to our home, but we don't know what to do. If he doesn't drink here, we probably won't hang out with him. If he does drink here, once he's drinking, there's no way we'd be able to keep him to stick to x # of drinks or "get out by midnight". Unfortunately, he does not turn into a pumpkin. He also doesn't like to hang out with us outside the house too much because he feels like a third wheel, so I guess we're just stuck for now. I don't particularly want to hang with him anytime soon anyway.
SIL went into labor last night and delivered another beautiful baby boy! Sounds like everyone is healthy. I don't think he has a name yet (got me thinking about what name I would choose...Probably something with Walter). I hope we can see him this weekend!
Sleep - I was really dragging this morning. I'm going to have to start scheduling sex or aiming for bed at 10 instead of 10:30 so I can get to sleep on time!
Food - I didn't finish yesterday's food log because I barely ate and I ate graham crackers for dinner. Seems like drinking always throws my food plans/resolutions off for a few days. I didn't eat breakfast because of my fatigue, just took AM supplements & had a glass of apple cider w/ collagen hydrosylate. I only have some fruit for lunch, but may go out to get something at the store. Pre-flavored cottage cheese isn't ideal, but it's convenient...
An interesting observation on increasing fruit & sugar in my diet - I'm not getting acne. It seems like that is mostly a response I get to PUFA's and possibly wheat. Sugar alone does not seem to be an issue.
I'm slacking on the neti pot use, as usual, and could really use it today. It was very dry last night and my nostrils felt uncomfortable upon waking. We're entering into nosebleed season so I really need to be using it.
I've got some kind of rash from my period, I think. First time that has ever happened. I really hope it goes away soon because it's incredibly irritating . I think I'll try some ACV on it...
BM - Type 1 after work yesterday and then type 4 in the evening. Type 4/5 mid-morning today.
